Born in England, educated at Oxford, and a longtime resident of Cape Cod, Margot Arnold has delighted mystery fans for years with her Penny Spring and Sir Toby Glendower novels. In this tenth book in the series, anthropologist Penny and archaeologist Sir Toby arrive in Cape Cod for a well-deserved vacation only to learn of the strange murder of a local professor. Someone has arranged the body of teacher Clara Bacon at her desk in a fashion to direct her discoverers to specific clues. And it seems the corpse, though perfectly preserved, has been dead for over a month.
"Margot Arnold is an honest-to-goodness mystery writer, with a sense of humor to boot."—Chicago Sun-Times
